Lisa’s January Recommendation

One Last Thing Before I Go by Jonathan Tropper

Here is a description of this book from our online catalog: “You don’t have to look very hard at Drew Silver to see that mistakes have been made.  His fleeting fame as the drummer for a one-hit wonder rock band is nearly a decade one last thingbehind hom.  He lives in the Versailles, an apartment building filled almost exclusively with divorced men like him, and makes a living playing in wedding bands.  His ex-wife, Denise, is about to marry a guy Silver can’t quite bring himself to hate.  And his Princeton-bound teenage daughter Casey has just confided in him that she’s pregnant–becuase Silver is the one she cares least about letting down. So when he learns that his heart requires emergency, lifesaving surgery, Silver makes the radical decision to refuse the operation, choosing instead to use what little time he has left to repair his relationship with Casey, become a better man, and live in the moment, even if that moment isn’t destined to last very long”.  Lisa says, “I really like [Jonathan Tropper], I think I have now read all of his books.”
